How to Throw & Center Linen Tablecloths or Overlays on Tables

At BBJ Linen, we want to help you make the most of your event tables by teaching the basic steps for using rental table linen to create a great looking table. In this video, you will learn how to make sure your linen is centered on your table to create a polished look. Follow along with our step-by-step guide!

What You Need

  • Event table
  • Rental tablecloth

Get the Look

Step 1: Pull the linen out of packaging and open it up. Step 2: Grab both edges and toss the far edge. In this video, we use 60-inch table with 120-inch rental table linen, but the same method works for a 132-inch rental table linen on 72-inch round. Step 3: Pull the linen into the center. The BBJ team has made this a little easier for you by making a big X where the center of linen is. Also, the seams on the edge of the table will be equal on both sides. We hope you enjoyed the video and now have mastered the art of a perfect linen throw! If you need anything else to bring your tablescape to life, BBJ Linen has you covered. We offer a variety of rental table linen, including runners and napkins, as well as table accessories, like charger plates and napkin rings.
